DIY Energy Saving Kit
“The world is warming up to something spectacular”, “Will the 2012 London Olympics provide more opportunities for swimmers, since most of London will be under water?”, and “Polar bears need air conditioners”, are some of the quotes that are doing the rounds on the Internet. All the above pertain to a single issue: Global Warming.
Everyone today, has a tip or two at hand, to contribute less to Global Warming. People say it boils down to every single human on this earth. True enough. But can one do it effectively? Will one benefit personally from doing so? The answer is yes.
However, there is a more compelling reason to start saving energy. Your own bills!

The DIY Energy Saving Kit looks at the concept of saving energy from an entirely different perspective. Its objective is to help a person save his/her money, through means that are unbelievably simple. The kit is replete with an energy audit guide and customized audit forms.
Many people don’t know where to start saving energy and money. The guide on Energy Saving Tips offers various answers. It could be a wall, the attic, an AC, or anything!
One should start with the Professional Energy Audit Guide. It is an exhaustive ‘document’, and one needs to be no rocket scientist to understand it. It is filled with diagrams, and useful tips. For instance, the fact that most electronic appliances consume a small amount of power even in standby mode is unknown to most people. The energy lost is small, but significant. This is just an example.
For those nerds and geeks who still miss their science classes, this guide describes some measuring instruments, like the IR thermometers in detail. This guide encourages you to take up Russell Crowe’s character in ‘A Beautiful Mind’, but only to find ‘hidden’ energy holes that can lead to significant losses! The guide takes you through the concept of an audit, advanced audit tests, and various methods to collect energy loss data.
Once the data has been collected, there is a set of energy cost workbooks that has been provided. For people who want to catch up on their mathematics, there is bad news!
There are no formula in these workbooks. No complicated patterns. Everything is customized to help the user do a complete energy audit in the easiest way possible.
‘Developing an Energy Savings Plan’ provides audit forms, and energy usage charts. These charts tabulate the energy usage of household electric and electronic appliances. The modified charts to help the user reduce the energy usage, and the calculations can be understood by even a fourth grader! The examples provided are germane and succinct.
